Officials are planning to scrap the viaduct that separates downtown Seattle from Elliott Bay and are seeking proposals for developing the new waterfront. It's hoped the new nine-acre site's beaches and boulevards will create a new focal point for the city. "Ultimately, what is designed and built will be something that really connects the whole city to Elliot Bay," says City Planning Director Marshall Foster. "We don't want this to be a center city project. We want people from all corners of the city to spend time on this waterfront."
